Focus on text work on 20.4.23 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
In this workshop we will look at practical approaches to facilitate writing. The aim is to formulate a framework for writing, to broaden the understanding of what a concept is and what it must be able to do, to sharpen the attention for essential aspects and to formulate some practical guidelines for writing.
Practical exercises and exchange are in the foreground of the workshop and also serve to work on your own proposal text. Therefore: Bringing a concrete project idea is desirable!
Focus on financial planning on 20.4.23 from 14-17 h (with breaks).
This workshop will focus on creating a cost plan for a project that will be submitted for funding. Current fee floors, KSK levies, etc. will also be addressed. Additionally, the development of a financial plan with multiple funding agencies will be discussed.
As a working example, we will use the form provided by the Munich Department of Culture.
Structured application on 21.4.23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The workshop teaches how to write an application for each call for proposals in a structured way, thus increasing the chances of being approved. We will mainly deal with the principle of an application argumentation, with which it is possible to logically combine the goals of the sponsor with one's own project goals. As a working example, we will use the form of the Munich Department of Culture. In addition, we will take a look at calls for proposals in order to understand which information is relevant for the funder to evaluate an application.
